[NPL] Highware ships SafeMail Pro
HIGHWARE SHIPS SAFEMAIL PRO FOR THE MACINTOSH Brussels, September 2, 1999. - Highware, has released the pro version of its PGP compatible encryption software.

SafeMail is about privacy: protecting and exchanging information in a secure way. Olivier Merenne, Highware's Managing Director, said "We want to improve security for Macintosh computer users.
